Artefacts from India's indigenous communities will go on show at Cambridge University for the first time.
Among the objects on display to the public, are pieces from the Taj Mahal, a head-hunters skull and a snake-charmer's flute.
The exhibition, Another India, celebrates the 70th anniversary of India's independence from Britain.
This is an exhibition about the India – or the many Indias – that most people in the UK don’t know.
We didn’t want to do a show about Bollywood, saris and curry, but instead highlight a massive body of marginalised people – numbering nearly twice the population of the UK – who to a great extent aren’t seen as having culture, heritage and history of their own.

People who convert to Islam face being shunned by family and friends, and even targeted by the security services, according to a new report from Cambridge University.
Academics from the university's Centre of Islamic Studies found that many Muslim converts also suffered physical and mental abuse.
The study by the Cambridge Centre of Islamic Studies examined nearly 50 Muslim converts of all ages, ethnicities, faiths and social backgrounds.
"I always joke with people that it's a bit like 'coming out' and I've discovered a lot of people who concealed this until the later stages.
I was exposed as a Muslim to friends and family inadvertently and my parents took it hard. They never came to my wedding.
I was also subject to some ridicule at work, which I now look back on as completely unacceptable in the modern world."
Cambridge University has received one of its largest ever donations.
35 million pounds has been given to Pembroke College from the estate of American inventor and sound pioneer Ray Dolby.
Mr Dolby received his PhD from Cambridge in 1961. Four years later he founded Dolby Laboratories in London and invented the Dolby System, a new way of recording high quality audio.
A proposed new court at the college will be named in his honour.
"The University of Cambridge played a pivotal role in Ray's life, both personally and professionally.
At Cambridge, he gained the formative education and insights that contributed greatly to his lifelong groundbreaking creativity, and we also began a wonderful lifetime together there."
